Hey cuties! Long time no wishlist post? It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a wishlist post – my last one was in Christmas 2016 – and since then my spending habits have spiralled almost out of control. Organising my own wedding didn’t help my budget, but now I’m suffering from the aftermath of it.
So instead of doing lots of impulse shopping I’ve decided to do a cute little jfashion wishlist to help me figure out what I really, really want.
… Is for my sanity to be intact, thank you very much. But really, though – when my loved ones ask me what I want for Christmas I would create a blog post and it usually includes a really gorgeous bag, that Hermione Granger wand that I’ve been wanting for ages or some really cute pink things like last year… But I’ve never really thought about the non-material things in life. So I’m shaking things up a little bit on this blog as it’ll be the first year that I won’t be doing a “normal” wishlist, but a list of things I want to happen over Christmas.
It’s never too early to think of the C word (Christmas, that is) unless you’re me who doesn’t really get the whole Christmas hype. This year, however, was different; ever since Halloween was over I started thinking of Christmas and then that John Lewis advert came out and now I can’t stop thinking about it! I’m planning on being super efficient this year with my Christmas presents, and I’m actually going to go shopping soon tehe.
Lately I’ve been trying to sprinkle a bit of cuteness into my everyday life – I rotate phone cases every so often and my colleagues at work always comment on them saying how cute they are which makes me really happy! My next step is to start wearing false nails or make my natural ones look pretty, so I’ve been looking around on the internet and found these Sailor Moon nails by LhouraiisShop which led me to make a cute wishlist for the summer.
Hey cuties! How are you today? ♡ Last week was a little hint that I am slowly experimenting with my style… I am getting a bit bored of doing agejo so I think it’s time to try something new! I always get really excited when I try out a different part of Japanese fashion tehe~ And the shop staff at Swankiss have been a massive inspiration lately. I just wish I had the clothes for it but I’ve told myself not to buy anymore brand because I can’t really justify it. I was a bit disappointed with Swankiss’ collection (as said here) but I just love the way the shop staff put everything together! Here are a few of my favourites.
Hey cutie patootie! How are you today? Oh my gosh I am so so excited for Spring; I went out on a walk the other day and I couldn’t help feeling really happy that it was really beautiful and sunny. It’s still pretty cold but that’s what layering up is for!
I’ve been a little out of touch lately with my “gyaru self” so the other day I spent the whole evening catching up on blogs and looking at new collections. I have to say that Spring is, hands down, the perfect season in terms of clothes right now. Everyone is bringing out their pastel colours and floral prints… I love it!
Here are a few of my favourites; I was just going to write about MA*RS but I’ve fallen in love with other brands like Rady & Liz Lisa!
On Wednesday I met up with my bby Pixie! It has been so long since I last saw her – like, May? – and I’ve missed her so much!
We decided to meet up early but I woke up to my eye being as swollen as ever! ;_; I knew I shouldn’t have rubbed it when I was tired the previous night… Luckily I bought a medical eye patch to cover it because there was no way that I wasn’t going to wear makeup.
I wish I realised just how big the eye patch was before I was doing my makeup… Because when I had finished and unwrapped it from its packaging I was starting to panic. It was huge! Like it covered all of my face! I had to sew it in half and work my magic so that I could actually see out of the other eye. But it was okay in the end and I started to feel better about it ^^
I went for a preppy d.i.a look and wore this shirt that I’ve had for ages but never really wore it. I need to wear it more often because it’s super pretty!
Booo this sucks ;_;
While I was getting ready I took advantage of my situation and snapped a make/no-make face shot! Isn’t gyaru makeup so amazing? What a difference it makes! *3*
I was in a rush so I wasn’t able to take a decent outfit picture, so a mirror shot would have to do!
Pixie took me to a nice Japanese restaurant down in . I was adventurous and tried out new dishes! I wasn’t too keen on the onigiri though… At least I now know what it tastes like, and can avoid it in future. The teriyaki beef was delicious though but I forgot to take a photo of it! ;_;
Selfies at the restaurant tehehe~ Pixie is so cute!
After our meal Pixie presented me with a little surprise: a seifuku set from her store Pixie Bunny! Oh my gosh I fell in love with it, the colour is absolutely beautiful! I’ve always wanted to do kogal again and the colour is so beautiful! Thank you so much cutie <3
Then we did some shopping! I was silently weeping because I found a really pretty coat in Miss Selfridge but it was £84 and my student discount expired the previous day. D’oh! But I did manage to buy some posh lipstick from Illamasqua. It’s not a shade that I’m used to but I liked it!
After that we headed home~ We’ve already arranged our next meet and I can’t wait to see her again! ♡
Oh and before I go… Pixie has brought out the love for himekaji in me again >///< I really want to have another go at it but I haven’t got the autumn wardrobe for it apart from the brown floral dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It’s so sad ;_; So I’ve made a little himekaji wishlist of the things that would go with what I already have, as I need to save money at the same time. Most of these items were relatively cheap!
To also help me build my himekaji wardrobe slowly I’m going back by a few years and going to start the “points system” so that I’m working to gain points/goodies! I wrote about it in a post here.
You may have been wondering why I haven’t worn agejo lately… In truth, it’s because I’ve gone completely off it. It’s really sad because I’ve spent so much money on gorgeous MA*RS items and now I can’t even think about wearing them anymore ;_; They’re just hanging uselessly in my wardrobe. I just wore agejo so much that I felt tired of wearing it, and it’s hard to create different outfits of the same item. I know that I do have a lot – and I mean a lot – of MA*RS to wear but everything just looked so similar so it didn’t really feel like it.
I’m not too sure what to do about it so for now I’m just going to leave it. I don’t think I can bear selling anything, but who knows?
Right now my heart has been captured by hime kaji and equally cute styles. I’m starting to love hime gyaru again, but I don’t think I can go as far as wearing lots of La Pafait or Jesus Diamante. I’ve gathered lots of inspirational pictures on my tumblr but it’s hard to do it without having any hime kaji/gyaru items! However, I’ve told myself not to spend too much on it otherwise it’ll just be like agejo and MA*RS all over again, and I don’t think my bank I can handle it.
But it’s been hard not to scroll through sites and drool over any hime-inspired items, so I thought that the best way to help me out is to create a wishlist! 😀
I actually tried out hime kaji a couple of times before reaching this decision~ Here are my latest hime
kaji looks! What do you think?
However, I find that hime kaji can look a bit boring sometimes so I’m going to use the same method as I did for agejo and make it dramatic! Big hair and bold eye makeup! I might even mix it with some elements of agejo like stockings and lots of bling… I could perhaps mix in hime gyaru too >_> I collected some images for inspiration.
… So maybe there are quite a lot of hime gyaru influences
I don’t know where exactly this will take me but I’m excited; I’ve gone back to my roots and my old interests, and it’s turning out to be a new adventure <3
So you remember how I mentioned in the past couple of posts back that I’ve found my style, right? Well this post is basically a compilation of all of my goals and ambitions to work into that style a bit more. I do have some of the stuff already but I’ve just got so many ideas whizzing around my head that I really need to write them down, aha.
We’ll start out with a picture of my agejo wardrobe selection! I’ve taken a photo from my “I Feel Like a Chameleon: My Gyaru Wardrobe” ‘s post and just added onto it as I’ve bought a few things since then.
Yes I have a bit of a thing for MA*RS at the moment… But I’ve been good and haven’t bought anything recently *cough*forlikeaweek*cough*
What I’m trying to do at the moment is buy more stuff that isn’t MA*RS related, but looks like MA*RS. This is because – like I said in my last post – I don’t really want to focus just on one brand of Agejo, but many, so that there is a bit of a variety in my clothing.
Okay so now that’s done… Onto my inspirations!
I’m all for curled hair and pretty updos at the mo, but I’ve realised that a) I haven’t got any rollers and b) I need to stock up on hair accessories. I guess my wishlist just keeps getting longer and longer!
I have fallen in love with Ageha all over again so right now I’m drooling over all of their make up tutorials, because these ladies look stunning.
And last, but not least, clothes!
Most of these are models from Ageha, but I really do have a lot of agejo inspirations! So here’s my list of my favourites 😀
Chie & Chika
Okay so I guess that’s all for my inspirations… Now it’s time to write up my wishlist.
I’ve always had a problem when it comes to buying things because I just buy what I like without thinking about whether or not it’ll go with anything in my wardrobe. So when I was looking for inspiration I compiled a list of the things I definitely want to buy – and should hopefully stick to.
Nice black handbag
Jewellery & other accessories
Rabbit hoodie (like the one from MA*RS)
Betty hair bible
Oh crikey… My wishlist is a bit longer than I thought it would be. LOL WHOOPS.
So this will be the last part of this surprisingly long post (I think I got a bit carried away) which is gonna’ be of all of my goals in the upcoming months.
Try out more hairstyles
Figure out daily agejo coords
Post on Codenote more
Build up my agejo wardrobe
I have to say that there aren’t that many goals but… I wanna’ keep it small so that I could focus on them all a bit more.
I guess that’s all for today’s post! I really hoped you enjoyed reading it, and that maybe you’ve been inspired by agejo as well!
Until next time, beautiful people <3
